History of the Show
The Montecito Motor Classic features a diverse selection of rare and unique vehicles. The annual car show draws car enthusiasts and families for an opportunity to interact with the cars and their caretakers, free of charge.
Since beginning in 2012, the event has drawn over 5,000 spectators per year. The family-oriented show offers something for people of all interests, including awards, interactive displays, and priceless automobiles, all to benefit local charitable organizations. Giving back to the community is the principal objective of the Montecito Motor Classic and it has successfully raised hundreds of thousands of dollars for the Santa Barbara Police Activities League and the Santa Barbara Police Foundation. Beautiful Santa Barbara County is a unique and affluent destination with everything that is needed to put on a spectacular event.
Why It's Important
The Montecito Motor Classic has always been about benefiting community organizations such as the Santa Barbara Police Activities League (PAL), Special Olympics, and the Santa Barbara Police Foundation. This year we are pleased announce that the 911 At Ease International and Santa Barbara Police Activities League (PAL) will be our 2021 benefiting organizations. Critical funds raised during this event will go directly to supporting the programs offered through these amazing organizations, that play a vital role in the greater Santa Barbara County.
